Friction is the force resisting the relative motion of solid surfaces fluid layers and material elements sliding against each other There are several types of friction: Dry friction is a force that opposes the relative lateral motion of two solid surfaces in contact Dry friction is subdivided into static friction (stiction) between non-moving surfaces and kinetic friction between moving

Carbon Microspheres as Ball Bearings in Aqueous

Jun 23 2011We present an exploratory study on a suspension of uniform carbon microspheres as a new class of aqueous-based lubricants The surfactant-functionalized carbon microspheres (∼0 1 wt %) employ a rolling mechanism similar to ball bearings to provide low friction coefficients (μ ≈ 0 03) and minimize surface wear in shear experiments between various surfaces even at high loads and high

Load bearing ability of coated film is extremely high at 300 000 psi Tungsten Disulfide (WS2) can also be used instead of Molybdenum Disulfide (MoS2) Since the powder offers one of the lowest Coefficient of Friction (Dynamic 0 03 Static 0 07) the applications are unlimited and could be tried with every conceivable idea


Dec 19 2019The friction force is useful for determining the amount of energy loss that will occur between two materials due to friction For instance if the contact between two steel substrates results in a friction force then energy loss due to friction will be high Depending on the normal force this could also result in a higher coefficient of friction

Solid Film Lubricants: A Practical Guide

The coefficient of static and dynamic friction is nearly equal to the level of wet ice on wet ice As DuPont registered trademark Teflon it has become a name associated with its use as a coating on cookware and as a soil and stain repellant for fabrics and textile products It does not absorb water and is unaffected by acids

Friction and Friction Coefficients

The friction force is the force exerted by a surface when an object moves across it - or makes an effort to move across it The frictional force can be expressed as F f = μ N (1) where F f = frictional force (N lb) μ = static (μ s) or kinetic (μ k) frictional coefficient N = normal force between the surfaces (N lb) There are at least two types of friction forces
